    General Product Description

    GreenCoat PLX Pural BT color coated steel is available in regular and matt finishes and offers a wide range of colors inspired by Nordic nature. It uses a patented bio-based coating having Swedish rapeseed oil instead of traditional fossil oil in the paint, which is unique on the market. SSAB holds a worldwide patent for this coating technology (Bio-based Technology, BT).

    This product has been developed together with tinsmiths in order to obtain optimum product properties combined with Nordic quality steel and an excellent coating. The result is a unique, premium product for tinsmiths.

    GreenCoat PLX Pural BT offers the highest level of durability for standing-seam systems. Product is recommended to be used in all premium tinsmith applications. It is highly formable, even by hand, and has practically no spring-back, which allows for very tight folding.

    GreenCoat PLX Pural BT color coated steel offers a coating that is optimized to resist weathering, resulting in excellent UV resistance (Ruv5 for matt appearance) and corrosion classes (RC5+). The slightly structured surface helps to protect against mechanical wear and is easy to handle during manufacturing. GreenCoat PLX Pural BT possesses excellent forming properties enabling very demanding folding even down to -15°C, allowing for year round installation at lower costs.

    The reverse side of the sheet is painted with a two-layer grey backside coating.

    GreenCoat PLX Pural BT complies with current REACH regulations and is fully chromate-free.

    SSAB’s color coated steels are all manufactured according to EN 10169.

    GreenCoat, Pural and PLX are trademarks of the SSAB group of companies.

        1) 1.5 x steel thickness for matt color RR19/SS0001.

        2) Classification into corrosion resistance categories is based on blistering, delamination and damage on bend of the coating after four years exposure in natural outdoor testing sites as specified in EN 10169.

        3) PLX fulfills the requirements of EN 10346 DX54D.

        4) Maximum steel thickness is 1.5 mm and maximum steel width depends on steel thickness. For other steel dimensions or steel grades please contact SSAB Tech Support.

        Note especially for Metallic and all Matt colors: To ensure tonal consistency of colors on a single exterior face, all material must come from the same production batch. Also the directionality of surfaces has to be consistent especially when sheets are cut to size. Compared to solid colors, larger measured color variation between production batches is typical for metallic colors, even if color is visually stable

        Reverse Side Coating

        Unless otherwise specified, the reverse side of the sheet is painted with a two-layer coating to further improve the corrosion resistance of the end product. The coating provides good adhesion properties to many adhesives and foams; nevertheless the compatibility needs to be tested case-specifically.
